Japan Airlines is using newly acquired daytime slots at
Tokyo's Haneda Airport to expand to 34 total international routes from the
airport and build on relationships with partner carriers.
Most of the new Haneda flights are replacing current JAL
flights from Narita. Haneda is an appealing option for travelers because the
airport is significantly closer to Tokyo’s city center than Narita.
Beginning March 29, JAL will start service from Haneda to
Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles as well as a second daily flight to
New York. That will coincide with JAL partner American Airlines' new service to
Haneda from Dallas and expanded service from Los Angeles. JAL also will
increase service between Chicago and Tokyo's Narita Airport in February 2021.
Outside of the U.S., JAL's service expansion from Haneda
will include a new route to Helsinki, with partner Finnair planning to
establish the route on a complementary schedule. Similarly, JAL aims to build
on its partnership with Aeroflot with new service between Haneda and Moscow.
Additional service from Haneda includes new routes to
Sydney, New Delhi and Dalian, China, and expanded service to Shanghai. JAL also
is adding two daily flights between Haneda and Honolulu alongside its two daily
flights between Narita and Honolulu.
JAL earlier this month announced expanded service from
Narita including San Francisco; Guam; Bengaluru, India; and Vladivostok,
